This is the age of technology and everything has some form of technology in it. Take for instance the basic phone has now turned into a small hand held computer. Even the house phone is being made more technologically advanced. Some house phones are now connected to your cell phone so you don’t have to worry about two phones in your home, they have built in answering machines, and they can utilize headsets wirelessly. This is how the advancement of mankind has affected our everyday lives.
Even our cars have become moving computers with the GPS systems, the Sirius radio system, the OnStar system, and of course the hands free phone system. These are all advancements that technology has awarded us over the years. But how has technology advanced our exercise routine? By adding heart monitors to exercise equipment you can now monitor your heart rate so that you can keep track of how many calories you are burning. Exercise equipment also calculates by the heart rate how much calories you have burned and how long you have been running for such as 1 mile or more. The on screen data that is presented in cardio equipment is very useful for keeping up with many different factors of your exercise routine.
Technology is the way of the future. Schools are starting to use smart boards for teaching in classrooms from kindergarten to college level classes. They utilize tablets and laptops in class and online libraries for colleges to house their journal articles and books so that students can access the information they need at any time of day or night. Schools are also starting to offer online degrees where you can get all your training, classes, lectures, and quizzes online while obtaining your Associates, Bachelors, Masters, and PhD in the comfort of your own home on your own time.
Imagine if scientists did not invent the technologies we have today! What would we do for telephones? What would we do for TV? How would we go to the moon and back? How would we communicate all over the world? These are questions that have been answered by technology. With technology it would be the dark ages and we would not be as advanced as we are. Technology has brought us out of the dark ages and into a generation of extremely educated, highly technologically adept students who one day will take on the world and change it to make it an even better and more advanced race of educators and students.
Imagine flying cars, and boats that can also drive on land. These are things that technology is working on for our future. Cars that no longer need gas to run and electricity that will not deplete the world’s resources. In our future the options are endless and technology will advance so fast and with such amazement that we may not be able to keep up with growing trends. At this rate we come out with a new phone every six months that adds new and improved apps and features that the previous version wasn’t capable of doing. Every six months a new computer program or game comes out and every few years they advance the gaming consoles making the previous version obsolete. Technology is our future and without it we would be lost.
